Legislature’s “Claire’s Cause” Collects Donations for Mohawk Hudson Humane Society

RENSSELAER COUNTY – After her family’s beloved Newfoundland “Claire” passed away, Vice Chair of the Legislature Kelly Hoffman wanted to do something good in her memory. For many years, the Rensselaer County Legislature would collect items for the Mohawk Hudson Humane Society during their “Golden Tradition” drive. In 2021, the Legislature combined the program to create the “Golden Tradition-Claire’s Cause”.

County employees and visitors to the County Office Building donated many items to help assist the animal protection efforts and programs at the Humane Society. Chairman Mike Stammel and Chair of Finance Bob Loveridge surveyed the donations before Vice Chair Kelly Hoffman personally delivered them to the Humane Society.

The Legislature’s recent creation and adoption of an Animal Abuse Registry was just another step in the Legislature’s record of commitment to the protection and well being of animals.

Thanks to all who supported Claire’s Cause!

Tracey Rex Reports to the People of Schodack

SCHODACK – I believe staying in touch with constituents is an important part of serving in elective office. This report, published every month since I took office in 2016, is an example of my commitment to keeping Schodack residents informed about town government news and community events.

During August, the Town Board accepted the Annual Audit Report of the Justice Court for fiscal year 2020. Honorable Judge Paul Peter, Honorable Judge Ryan Mullahy, Trish Loomis, Trudy Valli and Cindy Waters are to be commended for maintaining sound internal controls over public funds and court operations.

Congratulations to Jahmale Dickson who was appointed as a full-time police officer. I welcome Jahmale to the ranks of our outstanding police force that serves and protects our community with honor, integrity and professionalism.

Congratulations to Harry Spencer Duncan who was honored by the Town Board upon his retirement after 21 years of dedicated service as a Mechanic with the Highway Department. We also adopted a proclamation commemorating the Van Nederynen’s 100 years on the family farm.

Thank you to Castleton Public Library Trustee Kendra Rubin for attending our recent Town Board meetings to update us on all of the wonderful services and activities provided by the library.

Kudos to all the runners who participated in the Ken Morgan Memorial Clove Run. Thank you to Sara Westcott for your organizing efforts, along with the Castleton-on-Hudson Kiwanis, event sponsors and volunteers. The Clove Run benefits The Anchor Food Pantry.

It was great to see several families enjoying the Friends of Castleton Public Library’s Music on the Lawn concert last week. Thank you to the attendees and volunteers who helped raised money to support our library.

A friendly reminder that the Castleton-on-Hudson Farmers and Artisans Market is open every Friday through September 24 from 4:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. at the corner of Main Street and Scott Avenue.
